There's the old expression: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If you're used to the English method, there's no reason you can't continue using it. Stephanie (can't think of her last name) the Yarn Harlot does English and she's quite fast. I saw videos of her doing something called Irish cottage knitting. As to the k3tog and p3 tog, everyone has problems with this. That's why you need this forum to learn knitter's tricks and shortcuts. You slip those stitches onto a smaller size double point needle and then knit them together. You never insert the entire needle through those stitches, just use the tip.
